Thank everyone so much for all the sweet birthday wishes. My family surprised me with a little party on Sunday, and one of the things I received was a bouquet of mixed flowers.
By now, some of the blooms have started fading, and a few had to be discarded, so I decided to deconstruct the bouquet and make several smaller arrangements.
Let me show you what I made...
The first one is really simple...just a glass bottle with the two lily stems. That's in the family room.
Next, I put the two large roses in a little silver creamer for my bedside table.
Vase number 3 holds the yellow mums to brighten the powder room.
In the living room, vase number 4 holds pink carnations and little white button mums. I also added some boxwood cuttings for a filler since there weren't any leaves on the mums and carnations.
Last...arrangement number 5, is a Johnson Brothers tea pot which holds the alstroemeria. I put that on the secretary in the living room.
There you have it!
One mixed bouquet equals 5 smaller arrangements.
I hope you enjoyed seeing these. I had a lot of fun making them.
Have a great weekend.
